I have to confess to another illness! Chest infection that would not clear up. On my 3rd lot of antibiotics.All part of old age I am afraid.Fortunately not to much to do this time of year other than making certain the mould in stock does not dry out! Christine my wife has done this admirably and kept our gardens in good health.I have been forced to rest up because otherwise the doctor says I will not get better. Other news:is we started using our own fertiliser on our roses last autumn and this year we have had record numbers of blooms on the bushes.Coincidence or good plant food. We know many things do better in pots since we started trialling the fertiliser a few years ago.So our answer is good plant food. Of Course!
